Pretoriuskop Camp is named after a nearby hill under which Voortrekker Willem Pretorius, of Carl Trichardt's 1848 expedition to Delagoa Bay, is buried. Pretoriuskop offers some of the most well-known and oldest Kruger National Park accommodation, providing guests with a sense of nostalgia as they surround themselves with this vestige of the area's past.

What our guests have said about this accommodation

Deirdre McCole
The camp was clean and well kept. I love the rondavels, they are simple yet comfortable. The staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful. The shop was well stocked but expensive. I was disappointed to see the restaurant is gone only to be replaced by a Wimpy. The pool was fabulous, I really had a great time there and I am looking forward to my next visit.
ANTOINETTE ABRAMS
Dit is prentjie mooi en die diens was 5 uit 5 en ons was gelukig om al die diere te sien
DAVE WILLIAMS
Thank you to dolan for his continued effort in making bookings and our stay fantastic all round
PETER MCGINLEY
Only one night in a family cottage but we immediately regretted we were not staying longer. Very nice camp with a sense of history to it - I hope Kruger stays like this.
Danie Pretorius
Friendly staff at reception. Very close to nature with camping site next to fence. Calming and relaxing atmosphere. Game viewing not on same level as at Lower Sabie region.

Was a very basic camp, it isn't the kind of camp that I will pay but for 1 night was good.

Spent 5 days at Pretoriuskop. Loved the camp. Staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchen and ablutions were always clean. The Wimpy staff were even lovely. We saw the Big 5 twice driving between Pretoriuskop and Skukuza. Pretoriuskop has to be my favourite camp.

FIONA MACPHERSON
Excellent staff , clean facilities , great experience.
JENIFER BASSON
I was a bit apprehensive about the shared ablutions and kitchen, but was pleasantly surprised. We loved it so much that I think I will opt for these huts again next time. Hot water on tap for coffee, ...ablutions were really close and kept clean. Only frustration was no plug for chargers etc - have to pull plug out from fridge to charge phones. Bring a multi-plug with you! A bit disappointing to find a Wimpy in the Kruger, but they have done a good job to make it fit in.
Dori Moreno
Loved this camp. It's been recently revamped and everything was thought out, clean and in working order. We will be beach here.
Louise Treurnicht
Excellent service and help from Skukuza when our vehicle broke down on the Sabie River Road near Phabeni gate. In general I found staff very helpful and courteous and energetic and motivated.
Ann Thom
My husband and I had such a wonderful trip to the Kruger - Pretoriaskop was great -an old camp but it was just perfect. Skukuza is always great but more so because of the fantastic half marathon -the best in the country - was simply an amazing weekend - Thank you so much for allowing us to run in the park - what a treat!!
Christo
Neat, clean camp with friendly, helpful personnel.
ELIZABETH FERR

First class performance by all, including the animals.
Warnock Linda
We were most impressed with the service. First the booking was done quickly and easily despite it being a public holiday weekend. We were grateful to get accommodation. Your staff at the Croc Bridge entrance were most efficient, again despite their being a huge queue of cars. Having prebooked we were ushered through quickly and efficiently. A star performance by all, including the animals.
GERRIE BASSON
The reception was excellent and very professionally handled at Petoriuskop. Staff very friendly & helpful. The facilities from accommodation, public restrooms, gardens were all in perfect shape. Overall a great experience.

Renate Ferreira
Had a fantastic time.
Marthinus Bester
From reception to leaving all was great.
EDYNE THOMAS
We stayed in a Hut and it was just lovely. It was bigger than the Hut we stayed in in Lower Sabie. It could sleep 3. It was clean and tidy and it was cleaned every day. The amenities that we could use (cooking stove, BBQ, ablution facilities) were all great. All in all the accommodation was a better experience than Lower Sabie We did not eat at the Wimpy restaurant so we can not comment on the food or service.
MARION ASCHMANN
The accommodation was really good, it was clean and perfect choice.
Mabel
At a glimpse can be seen that camping sites are not up to par. The chalets are very well kept. All in all we had a lovely stay in Kruger.
Qume Erasmus
Camping site was clean, the camping bathrooms were very clean, friendly staff at reception and at the shop and at wimpy. The only staff that were really not that friendly wast at the Kruger Gate check in.

Rondawel. Die kamp was netjies en skoon. Kon sien waarom dit die kamp van die jaar sertifikate het.
